I. Guide Introduction~~~~Back to Table of Contents
Hello reader. This is my other guide and this time, I'll show you how to play Huskar. Take note that this guide does not teach you how to play Huskar in a professional way, it'll show you how I play Huskar in my personal way. Huskar is easy to play, in which he's considered by many players to be one of the most picked heroes in any game because of his simplicity and his uniqueness. Now, I'll teach you everything about what I've learned in playing this hero. Please don't put any offending or rude comments. Well then, let's begin...

V. Skills and its Usage~~~~Back to Table of Contents
I really don't want to copy all the statistics of his skills. If you want to know it, click here.
I have here a link to an amazing WoDota video about Huskar. In part 5:34 to 6:00 of the video, you'll see how [Yakuza]Kraizer (The Huskar player) owned the entire team all by himself. It'll show you how to switch orbs (Lifesteal and Burning Spear) in certain situations, how to use Inner Vitality in terms of Survivability (especially when you're HP is 40% and below), and on how to use Armlet in restoring little HP when you're in critical HP. Here's the video link: DotA - WoDotA Top10 Weekly Vol.97.

Explanation: This is my personal skill build for Huskar. We need to maximize Burning Spear and Berserker's Blood first since these will give you the advantage in early game and in mid game. Then, we level up Inner Vitality since this is effective later on, especially when you have your luxuries. Always level up Life Break when you're at level 6, 11 and 16 since this skill is game-breaking. After maximizing your skills, level up your stats to full.

IX. Conclusion~~~~Back to Table of Contents
Well, that's everything I can give you. When you're playing using Huskar, keep your head cool and don't let your emotions get the best of you. Remember, too much negative emotions can lead you to failure. When you fail, you'll lose your game but learn from that failure and be better in your next game. Keep that in mind. Well then, have fun playing as Huskar! Don't mess with the bad guy!
